Regina Carter

Violinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation – a designation which doesn’t quite paint the picture.  As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a “genius grant”). Those are more apparent than ever on her new release Southern Comfort, in which she explores the folk music of the South.  Regina Carter's quintet featuring Marvin Sewell on guitar. Will Holshouser on accordion, Jesse Murphy on bass, and Alvester Garnett on drums bring the Southern Comfort project to the Jazz Standard on Thursday, August 14th through Sunday, August 17th.
